Live Streaming: A Necessity in the Age of Coronavirus

What is Live Streaming?

At its core, live streaming refers to the online streaming of media that’s simultaneously recorded and broadcast in real time. Think of those football games you watch, or those live shows, concerts, and conferences. All of them require a media production team that sets up equipment (cameras, lighting, microphones) so that an event can be viewed on a TV, computer, cell phone or ipad as it’s taking place.

Why Live Streaming is a Necessity

Your business needs to stay connected to your audiences and customers. The pandemic is not going away anytime soon. Many face-to-face interactions have become difficult to achieve as social distancing is a necessity. Live streaming is the tool that bridges the gap between you and your clients. As you know, there is  just “ok” live streaming such as what you see on a zoom call  (with poor sound, lighting and fuzzy) or  and “outstanding” live streaming such as what Gemstone guarantees. The production values make all the difference.  In this side by side photo, the news anchor looks clean and clear and sounds great- but the interviewee looks horrible and sounds worse. You don’t have to settle for being “that guy”.

According to a recent survey, 81% of media and marketing executives think virtual gatherings, conferences and corporate communications will be the only option for businesses through 2021. And that’s for all sorts of events, big and small! It’s not just our opinion – take it from Marketing Dive, a website that provides statistics and news about trends shaping the marketing industry.

The “Future of the ‘In-Person’ Business Economy” study found that most industry professionals expect a virtual future for business communications, meetings and events, even after the pandemic subsides. That’s a 42% rise in that opinion from the Spring of 2020 to current day. Most businesses are already hopping onto that trend, capitalizing on the new necessity for high quality videos. As internet, social media, and television use has drastically spiked in recent months, it’s crucial for you to adapt to the new trends so that your business can look and sound “outstanding”, so that you can engage your audience and so that ultimately your business can prosper.
